About 24721 El Camino Capistrano

"Casa Dana," a treasured, cornerstone property in Dana Point, sits on an advantageous corner lot with an unimpeded view of the Pacific ocean and coastline all the way to Mexico. This 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival home is one of the best examples of the casual, luxurious California lifestyle that for 100 years has been the definition of California coastal living. The original architecture is likely to have come from the studios of the architect Wallace Neff since the builder is known to have worked with him. The charming and romantic architecture highlights the elegant setting with a unique L-shaped entrance including drought-tolerant landscaping designed by Jana Ruzicka, an intimate walled front patio, and an arched corner front door with a center-opening dutch door and a speak-easy window. The period-perfect interior provides living spaces with incomparable historic details. The formal living room with its proper wood beam ceiling and the large family room (both have fireplaces), an eat-in kitchen with an expansive ocean view, bedrooms with French doors and ocean views, as well as a bedroom/library with large windows which flood the house with sunlight. The second-story balcony is home to one of the best views of the Southern California coastline. The beautifully-tiled balcony is accessible from two bedrooms as well as the central staircase, which is adorned with the original 1929 iron balustrade and two intimate landings, including original bookcases and space for art. Flooring and tilework have been meticulously preserved or restored to honor the historical significance of the property, which enjoys heavily-reduced property taxes because of the local Historical Register and the Mills Act. Existing plans for a remodel have been approved by the City of Dana Point, the Coastal Commission, and also maintain the Mills Act designation. The approved remodel plans, designed by the well-known architect Carl Iverson, include a large, open-concept kitchen, an enlarged master suite, and a self-contained, plumbed office addition over the detached garage with a spectacular ocean view. This remodel would add approximately 800 square feet to the property. This home has not been on the market for over 27 years and this is a rare, once-in-a-generation opportunity to acquire one of the most well-known, well-preserved properties in Orange County. The property includes a spacious front yard, oversized salt-water pool with heater and separate outdoor patios.
